Quotes

Impact Head Coach Frank Klopas

It was a difficult match, with the surface and other factors, but both teams had to deal with it. We let in two unacceptable goals. We could have gone back home with a result, but now we have to regroup and take things one step at a time. There is still a game at home for us next Wednesday.

Impact forward Jack McInerney

It's obviously disappointing, especially to lose it on a simple mistake.But the positive thing is that we have the second leg at home. We can score a couple of goals and put them away. We wanted to control the game a little more, but I don't think we transitioned from defence to offence well enough tonight.

Impact captain Patrice Bernier

We have to forget about this game, put it past us and focus on our next game. They were good closing down the middle of the park. Now it's up to us to make sure we put it away in the next game. We have a tough game on Saturday against Kansas City, but we are playing at home, both Saturday and Wednesday, so we can build on that to get results.

Edmonton midfielder Daryl Fordyce

The first 45 minutes have gone well for us defensively. As the game goes on, we'll gain more confidence and we'll only get better as the game continues.

Edmonton midfielder Michael Nonni

We were working the whole night. We played well and got a few lucky bounces. We're very happy with the win.
